The Forest Lake Area Chamber of Commerce welcomed TradeWins Sports into the Forest Lake community with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, Nov. 2.

TradeWins Sports is owned by siblings Tim Dubbs and Carey Dubbs.

The store, located at 79 S. Lake St., sells new and used sporting goods equipment.

TradeWins opened for business on Sept. 1.

Looking to purge the outgrown or little-used sports equipment from your home?  Bring it in—you may go home with cash.

In a separate room at TradeWins, called the Sports Zone, athletes can work on swings of all kinds, including baseball, softball and golf.

Pay by the time used, for as little as a quarter hour, to practice fielding, play catch, improve footwork, or have an exercise class.
